Healthcare professionals are suggesting that getting a flu vaccine this year is more important than ever. To that end, Mercy is making it easy to get vaccinated with a drive-thru flu shot clinic from 9-11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10 at Mercy Clinic Mid Rivers, 4525 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville.
Anyone 7 years or older can get the shot without leaving their vehicle. Cars will be directed to drive through the Mercy parking garage entering from Madison Avenue.
Prior to the vaccine, each person will be asked screening questions, have their temperature taken and fill out paperwork.
Participants are asked to bring an ID and insurance card and to register by calling Mercy Pharmacy at (314) 251-7444 or (833) 729-8796.
Flu season typically runs from October through May with different strains of the virus developing each year.
For those who miss the drive-thru clinic, Mercy provides the flu vaccine at most primary care clinics, pharmacies and urgent care locations. For more information, visit mercy.net/fluvaccine
